As acquisition strategies and the nature of how work gets done continue to change, organizations must ensure their recruitment processes are competitive. Therefore, as part of its Talent Advisory Survey program, Allegis Group recently analyzed insights from nearly 12,000 employers and candidates in North America, EMEA, and APAC to explore what sets high-performing recruitment organizations apart. Now, we’re excited to share the results in a new white paper called, “Let’s Talk: Focused Conversation Topics to Supercharge Recruiting Success.”

After indexing the research, we learned that top companies spend 63% more time evaluating the efficiency and effectiveness of the recruitment process. They also share several distinguishing characteristics and are:

  • 3.8 times more likely to say their recruitment process successfully balances the needs of hiring managers, recruiters, and candidates
  • 3.5 times more likely to say their recruitment process leverages technology appropriately 
  • 3.3 times more likely to have a formalized and documented recruitment process with clear lines of accountability 
  • 2.9 times more likely to be satisfied with the recruitment process overall
  • 2.9 times more likely to say their recruitment process is fully aligned and supportive of business goals
  • 1.9 times more likely to measure candidate satisfaction
  • 1.7 times more likely to measure ROI by sourcing channel

Companies surveyed that aren’t achieving similar success reveal breakdowns in stakeholder dissatisfaction that have negative impacts downstream:

  • One in three (33%) employers thinks his/her organization’s recruitment process does not enable him/her to be competitive in the battle for top talent.
  • 72% of job seekers say recruiters don’t always understand a position’s top three priority skills.
  • 73% of employers report their recruitment processes fail to leverage technology appropriately.
  • 70% of hiring managers, 78% of talent acquisition professionals, and 59% of candidates are dissatisfied with the recruitment process.
